For those of you that take UDT, urine drug tests, be aware that you must justify the frequency of the tests. Is your patient a low, medium, or high risk to be a drug abuser? Additionally, you must research what a particular insurance plan may require to approve whatever your UDT frequency is on a particular patient. For Medicare patients, look at your local directives. As always, document, document, document!

Until next week,
